Background Information:
The Großer Rettenstein is a mountain with multiple peaks in the Kitzbühel Alps in Austria. The main summit reaches a height of 2,362 m AA Although not the highest mountain in the Kitzbühel Alps (that honour goes to the Kreuzjoch at 2,558 m AA), the Großer Rettenstein is the most striking in this range of otherwise gentle grass-covered mountains. It also has a mighty, craggy, summit block made of limestone, four hundred metres high, that stands atop base of grauwacke and primary rock (Urgestein – quartz phyllite). The Rettenstein is the dominating peak of the Spertental valley. Its isolated location also makes the summit an outstanding viewing point and it is therefore a popular destination. To the north the Rettenstein sends a long ridge out to the Spiessnägel, that separates the oberer Grund and unterer Grund.

I’m mainly a landscape photographer and take my camera with me on every trip. Though I’m still a learner/amateur-photographer I won several challenges and sold many works at several sites to different people all over the world.
